2009 Annual Report: Advancing Public Health in Georgia
State budget cuts in recent years have left Georgia’s public health system in critical condition. For the benefit of all Georgians, Healthcare Georgia Foundation believes it is time to reinvest in and rebuild Georgia’s public health system.
In 2009, the Foundation’s eighth year of grantmaking, we awarded 49 grants totaling $3,972,700, including the statewide launch of the Partner Up! For Public Health campaign. In addition to the campaign, the Foundation's grantmaking also featured significant investments in the Georgia Childhood Asthma Management Program, HealthTecdl - Distance Learning, and our new Evaluation Resource Center.
